Default 91 Honda Accord question

This started about 2 weeks ago. I thought it may have been a batch of bad gas thus why I haven't done anything yet but I got more gas last week and still having issues. So here goes my issue.

I was on the highway and I was doing between 70-80 and my check engine light came on so I pulled over and I turned the car off and raised the hood to see if anything might have popped off or anything I could fix at the moment but nothing. When I started the car back the light was off but it drove really bad like it wasn't getting any fuel but eventually straightened itself out.

On the way back the engine light came on so pulled over and turned the car off and let it sit for a couple of minutes and when I started back it was off but ran like crap again. I made it back home and changed my spark plugs and changed a heater hose I noticed was weak.

Those 2 changes made the car worse as when it starts it seems to be idled up really high, around 1700 rpm, then when it gets settled it drops anywhere from 500 to 1000 rpm. Sometimes it acts like when I stop it wants to die but the rpm hand goes back up to 500. Also it acts like its trying to get fuel or its not getting enough.

The newest thing is when I was going up a hill and it seemed like I wasn't going fast enough, I was in 5th gear and about to down shift to 4th to get some speed when the check engine light came on.

So today I thought I would test something. I went up a uphill in 5th where it sort of had to struggle to get up cause it should have been in 4th and check engine light came on.

Any suggestions?

My Auto Zone said they couldn't test my check engine light, only 96 or newer cars.
